HVAC System Market and Top Applications

  • Commercial – HVAC systems are widely used in commercial buildings. In commercial buildings, HVAC loads normally represent the highest energy expense. Geographic location plays a significant role; buildings far to the north or south of the world typically have high heating expenses. HVAC systems consume the highest energy in commercial places, about 30% of the energy at a business place is consumed by HVAC systems. Replacing a traditional HVAC system with an advanced and energy efficient one can help save a lot of energy in this sector.
  • Residential – HVAC systems provide thermal comfort to occupants of a building or room accompanied by indoor air quality. HVAC systems used for residential purposes maintain a consistent temperature, offer varying humidity levels, and improve air quality. These systems can be classified into local or central systems according to zones, locations, and air distributions. Moreover, growing urbanization has resulted in the increasing adoption of HVAC systems for residential purposes.
  • Industrial – The industrial space includes production areas, office areas, and warehousing areas. HVAC systems provide efficient temperatures by maintaining accurate temperatures and humidity as per requirements in the manufacturing zone. Warehouses are important parts of buildings and require temperatures according to the goods stored. An HVAC system is the only solution for warehouses as it maintains the desired temperature, humidity, and ventilation. Moreover, commercial structures can benefit from several interconnected systems that provide heating and cooling to individual floors or other areas.

HVAC System Market and Top Equipment

  • Heating Equipment– Heating equipment is an important part of HVAC systems. These types of equipment are used to heat up buildings to a particular temperature. HVAC systems heat up the environment by either generating heat within the building or pumping the warm external air into the building. The heating equipment includes heat pumps (air-to-air heat pumps, air-to-water heat pumps, and water-to-water heat pumps), furnaces (oil furnace, gas furnaces, and electric furnaces), unitary heaters (gas unit heaters, oil-fired unit heaters, and electric unit heaters), and boilers (steam boilers and hot water boilers).
  • Ventilation Equipment – The ventilation process removes the unpleasant smell and excessive moisture from the air in an indoor space and introduces fresh air. It helps in maintaining the internal temperature, replaces oxygen, and prevents the accumulation of dust and contaminants. The ventilation equipment includes air-handling units (AHU), air filters, dehumidifiers, ventilation fans, humidifiers, and air purifiers.
  • Cooling Equipment – Cooling systems are used to lower the temperature and to enable the proper distribution of air and the control of humidification in a space. Cooling systems are available in various forms, from portable systems to massive systems designed to cool the entire space. Cooling systems are mostly used in the summers to maintain the comfort level of an enclosed space by regulating the warm air with the introduction of conditioned air. Cooling equipment has been segmented into unitary air conditioners, VRF systems, chillers, room air conditioners, coolers, and cooling towers.
